(P/B) LEFTOVER WOMEN
THE RESURGENCE OF GENDER INEQUALITY IN CHINA
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0102

In the early years of the People's Republic, the Communist Party sought to transform gender relations. Yet those gains have been steadily eroded in China's post-socialist era. Contrary to the image presented by China's media, women in China have experienced a dramatic rollback of rights and gains relative to men. In Leftover Women, Leta Hong Fincher exposes shocking levels of structural discrimination against women, and the broader damage this has caused to China's economy, politics, and development.

(P/B) BACK TO BLACK
BLACK RADICALISM FOR THE 21st CENTURY
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0101

Back to Black traces the long and eminent history of Black radical politics. Born out of resistance to slavery and colonialism, its rich past encompasses figures such as Marcus Garvey, Angela Davis, the Black Panthers and the Black Lives Matter activists of today. At its core it argues that racism is inexorably embedded in the fabric of society, and that it can never be overcome unless by enacting change outside of this suffocating system. Yet this Black radicalism has been diluted and moderated over time; wilfully misrepresented and caric...

(P/B) COMMON SPACE
THE CITY AS COMMONS
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0088

Space is both a product and a prerequisite of social relations, it has the potential to block and encourage certain forms of encounter. In Common Space, activist and architect Stavros Stavrides calls for us to conceive of space-as-commons - first, to think beyond the notions of public and private space, and then to understand common space not only as space that is governed by all and remains open to all, but that explicitly expresses, encourages and exemplifies new forms of social relations and of life in common. Through a fascinating, glo...

(P/B) THE FARC
THE LONGEST INSURGENCY
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0062

To many - including the Colombian, US, and EU governments - the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia is no more than a terrorist organization. Moreover, they claim that the FARC is only engaged in criminal activities and no longer maintains an ideology. But does this tell the whole story? Is it possible to engage in armed revolutionary struggle in order to achieve political and ideological objectives without perpetrating acts of terrorism? As the UN's special envoy to Colombia noted in 2003, it would be "a mistake to think that the FARC ...

(P/B) ZAPATISTAS
REBELLION FROM THE GRASSROOTS TO THE GLOBAL
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0077

In the early hours of January 1, 1994 a guerrilla army of indigenous Mayan peasants emerged from the highlands and jungle in the far southeast of Mexico and declared 'Ya basta!' - 'Enough!' - to 500 years of colonialism, racism, exploitation, oppression, and genocide. As elites in Canada, the United States, and Mexico celebrated the coming into force of the North American Free Trade Agreement the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (Ejercito Zapatista de Liberacion Nacional, EZLN) declared war against this 500 year old trajectory toward ...

(P/B) ANOTHER WORLD IS POSSIBLE
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0027

In 2001 the first World Social Forum was held in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The meeting was viewed by many at the time as a new manifestation of the global Left, a people's opposition to the World Economic Forum that stood as the first real front to global capitalism since the collapse of the Soviet Union. While many activists and intellectuals on the left have since become deeply critical of the Forum, newer movements, such as Occupy, the Arab Spring and the indignados, have built upon its successes and innovations. Another World is Possible i...

(P/B) PATRIARCHY AND ACCUMULATION ON A WORLD SCALE
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0040

'It is my thesis that this general production of life, or subsistence production - mainly performed through the non-wage labour of women and other non-wage labourers as slaves, contract workers and peasants in the colonies - constitutes the perennial basis upon which "capitalist productive labour" can be built up and exploited.' First published in 1986, Maria Mies's progressive book was hailed as a major paradigm shift for feminist theory, and it remains a major contribution to development theory and practice today. Tracing the social orig...

Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0041

The struggles against corporate power and the institutions of globalization grow more courageous and confident year by year. Millions of people have already become active in rejecting corporate globalization and developing alternatives to it.

(P/B) THE ANTI-CAPITALIST DICTIONARY
MOVEMENTS, HISTORIES AND MOTIVATIONS
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0045

THE ANTI-CAPITALIST DICTIONARY is an alternative and a counter-balance to the many political dictionaries that ignore or marginalize the history and influence of anti-capitalist movements. It paints a rich picture of the ideas and issues that inform today's anti-capitalist activity. Anti-capitalism has existed in many forms and with a variety of names since the advent of capitalism. But this kind of oppositional force has often been ignored, misrepresented or trivialized by many in the mainstream media and academia and by established polit...

(P/B) CHANGE EVERYTHING
CREATING AN ECONOMY FOR THE COMMON GOOD
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0086

Is it possible to imagine businesses whose bottom line is not profit and endless growth, but human dignity, justice, democracy and sustainability? Or an alternative economic model untainted by the greed and breakdown of current financial systems? Christian Felber says it is. Moreover, in Change Everything he shows how we might go about making it a reality. The Economy for the Common Good (ECG) is not just an idea, but has already become a broad international movement with thousands of people, hundreds of companies, dozens of communities an...

(P/B) THE GLOBAL MINOTAUR
AMERICA, THE TRUE ORIGINS OF THE FINANCIAL CRISIS AND THE FUTURE OF THE WORLD ECONOMY
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0057

In this remarkable and provocative book, Yanis Varoufakis, former finance minister of Greece, explodes the myth that financialisation, ineffectual regulation of banks, greed and globalisation were the root causes of both the Eurozone crisis and the global economic crisis. Rather, they are symptoms of a much deeper malaise which can be traced all the way back to the Great Crash of 1929, then on through to the 1970s: the time when a Global Minotaur was born. Today's deepening crisis in Europe is just one of the inevitable symptoms of the wea...

(P/B) SOMETHING BRIGHT, THEN HOLES
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0099

Maggie Nelson's third collection of poems combines a wanderer's attention to landscape with a deeply personal exploration of desire, heartbreak, resilience, accident, and flux. Something Bright, Then Holes explores the problem of losing then recovering sight and insight - of feeling lost, then found, then lost again. The book's three sections range widely, and include a long sequence of Niedecker-esque meditations written at the shore of a polluted urban canal, a harrowing long poem written at a friend's hospital bedside, and a series of u...

(P/B) THE LATEST WINTER
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0098

In this, her second anthology of poetry, Maggie Nelson experiments with poetic forms long and short as she charts intimate landscapes, including the poet’s enmeshment in a beloved city - New York - before and after the events of 9/11. The poems of The Latest Winter are rich with wit, melancholy, terror, curiosity, and love. (From the publisher) "Maggie Nelson is one of the most electrifying writers at work in America today, among the sharpest and most supple thinkers of her generation". (Olivia Laing)...

(P/B) RECLAIMING PUBLIC OWNERSHIP
MAKING SPACE FOR ECONOMIC DEMOCRACY
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0100

Winner of the Myrdal Prize for Evolutionary Political Economy The last few years have seen the spectacular failure of market fundamentalism in Europe and the US, with a seemingly never-ending spate of corporate scandals and financial crises. As the environmental limits and socially destructive tendencies of the current profit-driven economic model become daily more self-evident, there is a growing demand for a fairer economic alternative, as evidenced by the mounting campaigns against global finance and the politics of austerity. Reclaimin...

(P/B) THE RISE OF THE GLOBAL LEFT
THE WORLD SOCIAL FORUM AND BEYOND
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0044

Leading sociologist Boaventura de Sousa Santos makes an impassioned case for the politicization of the World Social Forum, arguing that its full potential as a force for social, economic and political change can be achieved only by taking a stand against neo-liberal globalization, war, famine and corruption. However, since its inception in Porto Alegre in 2001, the World Social Forum has refused to adopt political positions on world events, preferring instead to provide a platform that facilitates cooperation between diverse social movemen...

(P/B) OMNIA SUNT COMMUNIA
ON THE COMMONS AND THE TRANSFORMATION TO POSTCAPITALISM
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0094

In this weaving of radical political economy, Omnia Sunt Communia sets out the steps to postcapitalism. By conceptualising the commons not just as common goods but as a set of social systems, Massimo De Angelis shows their pervasive presence in everyday life, mapping out a strategy for total social transformation. From the micro to the macro, De Angelis unveils the commons as fields of power relations - shared space, objects, subjects - that explode the limits of daily life under capitalism. He exposes attempts to co-opt the commons, throu...

(P/B) CHINA
THE POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY OF THE MIDDLE KINGDOM
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0097

China is a rising economic and political power. But what is the message of this rise? Tongdong Bai addresses this increasingly pressing question by examining the rich history of political theories and practices from China's past, and showing how it impacts upon the present. Chinese political traditions are often viewed negatively as 'authoritarian' (in contrast with 'Western' democratic traditions), but the historical reality is much more complex and there is a need to understand the political values shaping China's rise. Going beyond this...

(P/B) ASSATA
AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0096

In 2013 Assata Shakur, founding member of the Black Liberation Army, former Black Panther and godmother of Tupac Shakur, became the first ever woman to make the FBI's most wanted terrorist list. Assata Shakur's trial and conviction for the murder of a white state trooper in the spring of 1973 divided America. Her case quickly became emblematic of race relations and police brutality in the USA. While Assata's detractors continue to label her a ruthless killer, her defenders cite her as the victim of a systematic, racist campaign to criminal...

(P/B) CAN NON-EUROPEANS THINK?
Εκδότης: ZED BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1781-0084

What happens to thinkers who operate outside the European philosophical pedigree? In this powerfully honed polemic, Hamid Dabashi argues that they are invariably marginalised, patronised and misrepresented. Challenging, pugnacious and stylish, Can Non-Europeans Think? forges a new perspective in postcolonial theory by examining how intellectual debate continues to reinforce a colonial regime of knowledge, albeit in a new guise. Based on years of scholarship and activism, this insightful collection of philosophical explorations is certain t...
